My apologies if this has been discussed, but the search function isn't providing any threads.

Has anyone used Amazon Rapids with a struggling reader? It's approx $3/month or $30/year. It appears to be all Amazon-exclusive reading content (so, beginning reader-style books). It seems to be a "listen-and-follow along" thing.

Do your kids use and like it? Are the stories engaging?

We subscribed for a couple months over the summer.  My 9yo really liked it.  And it got him reading simple chapter books.  It was totally worth it.
